Ford has finally released and unveiled what they have kept under wraps for its 2023 Super Duty pickup trucks by showing off a refreshed vehicle lineup for the coming model year. It will offer buyers a now-available 12.0-inch touchscreen, upgraded interiors, and a squared-off face with bold grilles. Another new feature coming to the beloved pickup trucks will be a 6.8-liter gas-powered V8 engine that will join forces with the gas-powered 7.3-liter V8 and diesel-fed 6.7-liter V8 engine. The Blue Oval has also announced the official towing ratings that the 2023 Super Duty lineup will offer, which are incredible! The ratings blow the competition out of the water with a maximum towing capacity of 40,000 lbs, reminding enthusiasts that it is not called Super Duty for no reason.

Towing Capacity and Other Specs for the 2023 Super Duty Lineup
The spectacular 40,000-lb towing capacity is for the most significant Ford F-450 pulling a gooseneck trailer within the company’s lineup. This gives Ford a considerable lead against competitors like the Ram HD (which tops out at 37,090 lbs) and the Chevrolet Silverado HD (which tops out at 36,000 lbs). Even buyers who step down to the Ford F-350 will get a 38,000-lb towing capacity through the gooseneck trailer, which is still much more than the max towing capacity from competitors. The Blue Oval has also stated that it offers the best in its class mated with a conventional towing setup, which maxes out at 30,000 lbs. The company has also claimed that the Super Duty maxes itself out at an 8,000-lb payload, which is several hundred pounds higher than competitors like Chevy and Ram. 

Ford has also released another component to the incredible Super Duty lineup, the horsepower and torque ratings it will offer for the 2023 model year. The ratings are as follows:

  • The 6.7-liter Power Stroke V-8 diesel offers two different outputs:
    • The standard offers 475 horsepower and 1,050 lb.-ft of torque.
    • The High Output offers a whopping 500 horsepower with 1,200 lb.-ft of torque
  • The 6.8-liter offers 405 horsepower and 445 lb.-ft of torque.
  • The 7.3-liter offers 430 horsepower and 485 lb.-ft of torque.

Every vehicle within the lineup will also be equipped with a 10-speed automatic transmission and four-wheel drive, which is standard for the XLT trim and up.

With all the fantastic features offered, the Super Duty lineup will also include technology designed to make towing easier for its buyers. It will consist of features such as:

  • Pro Trailer Hitch Assist (meant to assist drivers in affixing the hitch ball to the receiver).
  • The optional 360-degree camera.
  • Onboard scales will help even out the weight distribution within the vehicle.
  • A specific trailer navigation setting will assist in choosing the best route for towing.

Ford has added all of these features to ensure that its vehicles continually improve its buyers’ lives. The Super Duty lineup will see a starting price of $45,765 (Plus Destination Fee) and will see deliveries start to roll out early next year!
